DB Press - felt okay, 55 was hard but good.

Rows - same. #15 is hard but good.

DB curls - ouch my arms, this is hard.

Tris - very hard today but I got them.

Backhands - just wanted to try a high-low backhand and it felt good. I will keep them in.

4/27/13

AM: MMA class. Worked guard with LK, and then did a couple rounds with L~. I managed to put a tight triangle on L, but he wouldn't give and managed the right escape. Caught me accidentally with his shin and stunned me and left me with a bruise on my forehead, and getting stunned didn't help me keep him in the submission.
